Talkin' with Able

Able's gotten a lot smarter. I re-wrote a substantial portion last night and he's sounding a lot more "human." His moods now influence his feedback, which is what I intended. I still need to give him the ability to learn new words and re-phrase his feedback.

He will also be able to use AppleScript to manage things for the user like iTunes, the calendar, etc.

Here's some of tonight's conversations:
